My girlfriend Michelle, from Vancouver, turned me on to this easy and yummy recipe. It literally takes 10 minutes to combine and 15 minutes to bake – so much easier than individual chocolate chip cookies!
- 1 1/4 cups quick cooking gluten free oats
- 1/2 cup organic butter
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Sugar
- 1 large organic egg
- 1 tsp Simply Organic Vanilla Extract
- 1 cup gluten free oat flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 cup organic chocolate chips
Put oats in food processor and process until finely chopped. Set aside.
(I skipped this step because I like the oats in be in full form)
In a large bowl beat together butter and sugars until well blended. Beat in egg and vanilla.
In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in chipped oats.
Add flour mixture to butter mixture. Stir until just blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop mounds of dough over entire surface of greased 9X12 pan. Using fingertips gently press dough evenly into pan and smooth surface with metal spatula.
Don’t worry if dough doesn’t completely cover pan, the odd small gap will spread out during baking.
Bake at 350 for around 15 minutes or until golden around the edges. Let cool in pan on wire rack for 15 min. Cut into bars and remove to wire rack. Let cool completely.
NOTE: While my girlfriend made them at sea level, I’m in the mile-high city and it took an extra 5 minutes of baking 🙂
